Let's assume that all people have been removed, all bodies found and removed and all water pumped out. Now what? What about contamination in the sheetrock, insulation and swimming pools? Is the plan going to just let a flood of people back in? Where are people going to get building supplies? How do you get rid of all the junk? Holy shit seems like the problems just keep getting bigger.

They are probably going to have to bulldoze the vast majority of NO

Should just bulldoze Los Angelas and use it for fill dirt to bring NO above see level. Then rebuild NO.

Well, I understand that the conversion of oil shale to oil leaves large amounts of waste in the form of a sand like material.

Put it all together...we have a deposit of oil shale under CO and some other states that supposedly contains more oil than Saudi Arabia...strip mine it out, process it. The greenies were bitching about all the waste and what to do with it...

Use it to bring NO above sea level...problem solved

Lots of oil, and $0.75 per gallon gas, and NO high and dry. And the environmentalists pissed off...its a win, win, win situation....

Given how EPA/OSHA and all the rest of them require such tight-assed controls on anything that may be considered dangerous, there are going to be 100's of THOUSANDS of tons of materal that fall into that catagory. Where is going to go?

And then there is just the regular stuff. Where does that go? On site recycling? Spend millions upon millions to have it trucked and railed out to places that can deal with it?

No one in history has had to deal with this much sheer shit that needs to be handled, moved, stored, recycled or disposed of. We're going to be seeing ramifacations of this for GENERATIONS.

That's what I mean, not to mention , won't the germs be in everything that was wet? Rugs, couches, clothes? Won't people get sick just handling it?

Good idea!

Bulldoze it, use the debris for landfill, build a ship channel for tankers, then put a refinery on the site.

I say just burn the fucking place to the gound, but then the environmental whack jobs would be bitching about the smoke, smog, air pollution and the continuing and rising threat of "global warming."



Just burn the fucking place down

Burning is probably the most efficient way to get rid of the lost areas that will have to be destroyed anyway. It reduces the size of materials pretty effectively (what, around 10% of it's original mass?) and the fire has the added benefit of killing any nasty shit that's floating around. Once burned down, till everything into the ground and add 30 feet of fill to raise it above sea level.

It probably won't happen that way. They'll probably send in hazmat teams to deconstruct everything at 100x the cost, rebuild the levees to cat5 strength, and rebuild most homes in low lying areas on stilts.

All on our dime of course.

There needs to be a 1 time moratorium on rebuilding of flooded homes.
